How do the 3-leg Adjustable Tripod Ladders work?

It’s simple, really. Our 3-leg adjustable Tripod Ladders provide wobble-free stability because all three feet always remain in contact with the ground.

By adjusting each leg individually to counteract uneven ground, the 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder allows you to ensure that the rungs are always level. All three legs adjust up to 18 inches (45cm) to allow you to safely work on all types of surfaces, including uneven and sloping terrain. The ladder’s claw-like feet grip the soft ground to add extra stability and stop the ladder from sinking.

The 3 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder’s standing platform provides a safe place for your feet while you work. You can tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work.

Features of the new 3-Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder

The tripod ladder that you know and love has had a redesign. Now better than ever, you can stay safe when working at height thanks to our Henchman 3-Leg Fully Adjustable Tripod Ladder. Suitable for both soft and uneven ground, carry out your garden and DIY tasks in a wobble-free manner, whether that’s indoors or outdoors, come rain or shine. The tripod’s legs can be individually adjusted and its claw-like feet have a solid grip into the ground, providing complete stability while you’re pruning trees and hedges, getting creative with topiary or simply cleaning windows.

Please note that if you’re planning to use your tripod ladder every day, then our Fully Adjustable Tripod Ladder PRO is what you need. If the surface you’re working on is flat or only slightly sloping, then we recommend using our 1 Leg Adjustable Tripod Ladder. If you’re unsure of which you need please call us or mail us we are happy to help. 

A fully adjustable tripod ladder with extendable legs

Whether you’re pruning a rose bush or trimming your hedges, you want to keep everything looking neat and tidy. This has never been easier now that we’ve upgraded our tripod ladder. All three legs on our tripod ladder can be adjusted individually so you can work safely on almost any surface.

Each leg can be extended by at least 18 inches/45cm and can be placed easily in any position, allowing you to adjust for inclining or declining ground to keep your ladder level, so you can safely reach those awkward branches with ease. Henchman Tripod Ladders can cope with level changes up to 80% more than other ladders you’ll find on the market, allowing you to get close and personal with your work and ensure there’s not a single leaf out of place.

Our Fully Adjustable Tripod is next level in terms of your safety. The legs are secured by our NEW patent-pending hedge-proof locking pin. To adjust the legs, simply twist and release the handle, then pull to unlock the pin. Release the handle and it will click back into place, twist the handle back into its close position, and your ladder legs are locked and ready to support you as you work.

Generous space with our comfortable platform

Our innovative platform gives you enough space to work safely and comfortably. With a size of 7”/ 18cm, your feet are placed firmly on the platform and your knees are tucked into the frame, with your body leaning against the hip height guard rail so that you can work hands-free in a stable position. A wobble-free experience is guaranteed. 

Our NEW 3-leg adjustable tripod ladder comes with an increased guardrail height for another layer of stability, providing more freedom to move about and work hands-free. 

The ONLY fully adjustable tripod ladder certified to UK safety standards

The UK and EU have strict standards called EN131, which cover a range of requirements set by industry experts to help you choose a ladder that’s proven to be safe. The standards require annual testing by an independent testing house for the ladder's stability, grip, dimensions, safety labeling, and a safe working load of 150kg - 50% more than some competitors. 

When it comes to EN131 standards, you may see phrases like ‘conforms’, ‘tested’, or ‘built to’ EN131. However, these terms can suggest that the ladder is not fully tested - it could have the right dimensions but the working load may not have been safety tested, for example. Our 3-adjustable leg ladder meets the full specification, meaning you can be confident that your Henchman ladder will keep you safe. 

If unsure about the quality of a ladder, the EN131 certificate should be available to the public and can be shown to you when asked. Find out more about EN131 ladder standards.

What’s new with our Henchman Fully Adjustable Tripod Ladder?

Our original lineup of tripod ladders  has been on the market for over a decade, and during that time we’ve sold tens of thousands to happy customers. We’ve also collected your feedback and collated it into a series of design updates and improvements. You spoke, we listened. 

  • Improved platform - the ladder platform is now deeper to provide more leg room, and the higher guardrail feels more secure when leaning against it.
  • Increased adjustability - now up to 80% more adjustability than our original tripod ladders
  • A safer, more durable mechanism on all legs.
  • Increased strength and rigidity - the re-engineered larger legs are 15% stronger than our previous adjustable tripod, improving the rigidity for an even more stable experience.

Tripod ladder with 3 adjustable legs

The ladder’s three legs adjust independently to accommodate uneven surfaces, slopes, and steps. Secured with our new hedge-proof locking pin to give fast and ergonomic adjustment, whilst designed to prevent the pin from becoming dislodged by shrubbery or branches.

A platform that keeps you stable and safe

The built-in working platform allows you to tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work. The increased guard rail height gives even more stability than before.

Professional standard that’s built to last

Professional level safety for all. Tested by British Standards Institution (BSI) and fully certified to BS EN131 with the trusted Kitemark.


What jobs is the 3-leg adjustable tripod ladder suitable for?

The Henchman 3-Leg Adjustable Tripod Platform Ladder is designed to keep you safe during a wide variety of garden and DIY projects, including:

  • Trimming hedges
  • Pruning roses and shrubbery
  • Climbing trees and flower maintenance 
  • Cleaning gutters
  • Decorating around the house
  • Reaching high ceilings and skylight windows

Selecting the right size 3 Adjustable Leg Tripod Platform Ladder

It’s important to know the average height at which you’ll be working before ordering your tripod ladder. For example, if you’re going to use your ladder for hedge cutting, then first measure the hedge, so you know what you need. 

Note that, when we talk about ladder sizes, we’re referring to the bottom of the ladder to the top when fully retracted. 

The platform rung on our 3-legged ladder is 3ft / 0.9cm from the top. This means that, when standing on the platform, the top of the ladder is level with your waist. For example, on a 6ft / 1.8m ladder, your waist is 6ft / 1.8m from the ground. 

We recommend working between shoulder and waist height. As your shoulders are usually around 2ft/60cm higher than your waist, this gives you a working height range of 6-8ft/1.8-2.4m, from shoulder to waist. 

If you’re going to be working between 6-8ft, our 6ft./1.8m ladder will do the job perfectly.

Our 3 adjustable leg tripod range starts at 5ft, with our largest ladder being 12ft. With this ladder, you’re standing 9ft from the ground.


Code Treads Platform height Waist Level Overhead Reach Weight
HFTRI-5 2 2ft/0.6m 5ft/1.5m 9ft/2.7m 7kg
HFTRI-6 3 3ft/0.9m 6ft/1.8m 10ft/3.0m 8kg
HFTRI-8 5 5ft/1.5m 8ft/2.4m 12ft/3.6m 10kg
HFTRI-10 7 7ft/2.1m 10ft/3.0m 14ft/4.2m 12kg
HFTRI-12 9 9ft/2.7m 12ft/3.6m 16ft/4.8m 14kg


All sizes provided are with the extendable legs fully retracted.

To avoid ordering the wrong-sized ladder, it’s important you know exactly how high you need to reach before you order.

For example, if you’re using your ladder to trim hedges, we suggest picking one that’s more or less the same height as that hedge. Measuring the hedge height before you order will ensure you choose the right size.
